Hi Terrin, thanks for the friend request - It's my pleasure! Welcome! Glad you are enjoying the site, we're a small but fun group. I was born in Brooklyn, lived on Long Island, and a year and a half ago moved upstate to Ithaca to begin anew. Looking forward to getting to know you better.
WOW a lot of questions lol! Nothing much is going on in Brooklyn just a daily dose of cops harassing people, homeless begging for money, no jobs.. the usual inequalities that so many of us choose to ignore.
I volunteer at a local soup kitchen kind of place. I don't have a job and want to help people so I figured time is the most valuable commodity besides water. I play electric guitar and I like to rap which I'm repeatedly reminded is an odd combination.. even more weird because I'm black lol I'm not married. No children. This is my first atheist site and it's very cool. My family and friends always thought and knew I was different. They're pretty cool with me being an atheist but everyone else thinks I'm going to hell as well. "I'll see you there" is usually my response. My friends are cool they're pretty much a mixed bunch some agnostic most christians but they're all open minded except when I tell them I'm an advocate of anarchism.. probably similar to your parents.. and what do you mean? what happened between your parent? did they divorce and all of a sudden become religious? that would be weird..
No one argues with me about God not existing because I'm a great debater and a fan of "socratic method" which isn't popular among regular people.. I almost always get into fights because people can answer simple questioning. Thank for the warm welcome!
